A Pink Orange Sigh

between night’s descent
and the sleeping earth
resides the colored breath of light

Late Meadow

the season’s colors
settling down
to the ground into brown

Everything At Once

each element
finds the perfect place
next to all the rest

Bright Spot

early and delicate
light rises
from the dark ground

Wonder of the Wallow

being one with
the great fertile earth
oh the magic of mud

Slow Rising

the earth awoke
with tiny blooms
as tulips trumpet spring


green dinosaur
rises from the ancient earth
defying extinction

The Usefulness Of Everything

bark, branch and leaf
pay their debt to the earth
with themselves


starry night
upon the ground
astronomy on earth

Apple’s Obligation

time is the harvester
of a crop that grew
to feed the earth

A Hush

snow fell
like the earth’s sighs
quieting all concerns
